Militant and driving in their effect, each cut presents its own melodious theme; running parallel to the strong percussive undercurrent of high impact techno that can be heard across the extended player.Continue reading
Since bursting on the scene in the mid 90, Gaetano Parisio has led the charge for Italian techno for more than two decades.
Along with compatriots such as Marco Carola, Danilo Vigorito and Rino Cerrone, Parisio helped establish his hometown of Naples as a mecca for tough, uncompromising beats with his Conform Records label setting the template for others (including a new generation of Naples artists. Having followed the success of Conform with the ART (Advanced Techno Research), Southsoul and Adagio projects, Parisio stepped away from DJing in 2007 to focus on making music, as well as seeking to inspire the next generation of techno producers.
With this in mind, the now-Barcelona based Parisio has relaunched the Conform imprint with two monster releases that level into the label’s back catalogue – Conform 20th Century (1997-2000), which was released on 7 May, and Conform 21st Century (2000 onwards), which is set to land on 21 May.Continue reading

We are in for a very special treat this week with an exclusive mix from the legendary Gaetano Parisio!!
Gaetano doesn’t normally do guest mixes but we are lucky enough for him to agree to do one just for us ?
One of the leading lights of the Italian techno scene, Gaetano has produced a multitude of tracks under his name and his Gaetek moniker for labels such as, Drumcode, Tortured, Zenit, Planet Rhythm & Primate as well as his own brilliant Conform, ART & Southsoul imprints.
“Naples, the third largest city in Italy, would be only half as famous without the fourth element. But this track premiere is not about imploding magma chambers or cooking Italian cakes. The southern Italian label Conform Records made it their mission in ‘97 to bring the Neapolitan fire into the clubs and homes of the world.
The medium chosen by label boss Gaetano Parisio has always been vinyl. Without exception, he remains true to black gold til today. With the Re-touched Series Vol. III, the third episode of his remix series is coming out this year. But when you skim the participants it turns out that this is no wonder, because reading alone makes your heart warm.

Uno dei più rappresentativi rimarrà sempre Gaetano Parisio, il produttore campano che ha saputo dare lezioni di grande musica al resto del mondo.Continue reading
